Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

Probably best to get her to vomit now

Do you have any hydrogen peroxide at home?

Is there anything I should look for
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Okay are you able to get some?

Or if you want to watch for clinical signs- you can :)

I think that the amount ingested will only cause upset stomach at the worst

So watch for vomiting and/or diarrhea

Okay?
